The cold crispy weather we have been experiencing for the past week is coming to an end, Sharon O’ Keeffe took the opportunity to capture the spectacular wintry scenery.
The drone footage shows the icy conditions and vastness of the mountain.
We thank Benas Pikcilingis for submitting a spectacular video of the landscape and scenery around Clara Mountain and Millstreet area. A true reminder of how fortunate we are to live in such a spectacular and scenic area.

Once more the Summer decks the hills round dear old Millstreet town
The breezes waft the scent from flowers of green Duhallow down
The sunshine chases shadows fleet o’er Muskery’s meadows wide
And light and shade guild every glade by sweet Blackwater’s side
Sweet it is when Clara hill is clad in sunset glow
And happy lovers shyly meet in many a vale below
They breathe the balmy Irish air and roam the meadows through
Where Finnow witching waters join the far famed Avondhu
Oh. Avondhu by many a field your shadowed waters glide
Where I have life[s golden hours your restful banks beside
Now scattered afar the comrades all my careless boyhood knew
Alas we’ll never meet again beside sweet Avondhu
Some sleep beside that grand old stream in the graveyard on the hill
They closed their eyes in dreamless death while life seemed pleasant still
Light lay the sod upon their clay may heaven’s sweetest dew
For ever bless each comrade’s grave beside sweet Avondhu
The fairest land on earth art thou Oh Ireland grá mo chroí
Your Exiles brave in every land are wrath to make you free
Their dearest hope that yet some day in Freedoms light they’ll view
Their Native hills that sleep for aye beside sweet Avondhu

The current nice weather has seen cows return outside after a very long wet winter. Signs that the summer is on its way. – Geraldine
